The EV1518DG-00A is an evaluation board for the MP1518, a step-up converter designed for driving up to 6 series white LEDs from a single cell Lithium Ion battery. The MP1518 uses current mode, fixed frequency architecture to regulate the LED current, which is measured through an external current sense resistor. Its low 104mV feedback voltage reduces power loss and improves efficiency. The OV pin monitors the output voltage and turns off the converter if an over-voltage condition is present due to an open circuit condition.
The MP1518 includes under-voltage lockout, current limiting and thermal overload protection preventing damage in the event of an output overload.
